These young CLIMATE scientists are focused on a critical objective: saving the planet from ourselves.

Design a wind turbine out of recycled materials. Plant a “seed bomb” in your garden. Calculate your family’s eco-footprint. Through an examination of energy efficiency, food systems, and household waste, Eco Genius studies the human impact on our environment and how we can lead a more sustainable daily life. By the end of the week, students will create a concrete plan for taking action—at home and in the community—to improve the world we live in.

What you will learn at Eco Genius:

  • Stewardship skills to improve and protect the environment for future generations
  • Ecological literacy for understanding the relationships between humans and our planet
  • How to plan and build an actionable blueprint for change
  • Strategies for critical thinking and problem-solving
  • Best practices for public speaking—ability to pitch and present work
  • Exploration of the U.N. Global Goals for Sustainable Development
